Why shouldn’t Japan reprocess? Let them! Just think, look at it from their perspective. How can they continue to count on America’s umbrella of defense? The pace at which America is decaying, they might rightfully question whether America will even exist twenty years from now. Much less be in any position to assist them in some grave regional threat. I wouldn’t blame them one bit.
Hm, I don't know... I rather think there's a good chance of something sparking a CWII -- In that case there's going to be a lot of question as to which side will win.
